RAIL MERGERS ! IN CONTROVERSY Interstate Commerce Committee Split on Question at Meeting. WASHINGTON, Feb. 10: UP)-Members of the senate interstate commerce committee expected a controversy today as they met to consider a report questioning the advisability of further railroad con solldations. The report, drafted by Wlllian- C. Green, the committee's counsel after a six months investigation has direct bearing on the proposec four way consolidation of eastern railroads, negotiations for which were sponsored by President Hoover. Committee members- have split into two groups over Green's conclusion that a study of the records hearings and experiences of the past 19 years "does not disclose a situation requiring in the public interest further encouragement of a comprehensive program of consolidations as required by the transportation act." Republican and democratic independents on the committee were expected to urge adoption of the report, while some of the other members were prepared to urge radical changes in it, or its rejection.
